What Is An ADAS Camera?

ADAS is short for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. These systems are designed to increase your situational awareness and road safety. Camera-based ADAS modalities are the widely adopted of all ADAS modalities because of their applications, high reliability and adaptability to new requirements. They do this by providing important information, warning and automatic intervention in order to reduce the possibility or severity of an auto accident.

Generally, the ADAS camera-based system is deployed in the front, side and rear of a car and provides driving and parking assistance. Usually the front camera systems will be mounted in the front portion of the car that is behind the rear view mirror. The rear cameras are mounted on the rear side near the license plate, and the side cameras are mounted on both sides of the cars just next to the mirror.

The ADAS front camera will capture and identify things like people, cars and two wheelers along with the distance from the car. The camera will then apply emergency brakes at the right time to avoid a collision.

The three factors that interact to achieve the goals of the ADAS camera-based system include:

  • The real world consisting of objects posing a potential threat
  • Camera module consisting of a lens and sensor assembly which captures the real world actor as image pixels
  • Algorithms which find the object of interest and alert the driver in case of possible collision

The ADAS camera-based system is accurate and helps drivers avoid collisions and reduces the severity of the collisions that do occur.
